    Wtb - LN 49

    I am looking to buy a Lie Nielsen 49 (1/2").

    Would like to find one in good or better shape.

    Please dig around, check the back of the drawer, call a buddy, look under the couch. I have a project at a standstill until I find one.

    I fully understand the current pricing environment.

    Much thanks.

    Dang, my suggestion was to try and find an old Stanley #49.

    Seems the auction site only has one listed. At four days out it looks to be in a bidding war.

    In rough times people have to accept rough solutions. Any chance you could do this job with a Stanley #45 (or equivalent) using the small match blade?

    The problem with plough plane, etc. is finding blades.

    i keep hoping somebody, somewhere, has one sitting in a drawer or hanging in a cabinet they will decide to part with. Box or no box, I have cash in hand.

    If you are on Patrick Leach's email list he has the 49's pretty regularly I think. I got a 48 from him a few months ago.

    doesn't Lee Valley have current blades for their plow plane? (both for groove and tongue?)

    Out of stock until Aug 6th. Still looking for a LN 49 (1/2"). I keep hoping that somebody, somewhere, has one. I have cash in hand and I am a very motivated buyer.
